Main MIDlet code

form.setCommandListener(this);
 
}
 
public void startApp() {

display.setCurrent(form);
}

}
 
public void destroyApp(boolean uc) {
}
 
public void commandAction(Command c, Displayable d) {
if(c==exit) {
destroyApp(true);
}

ResourceBundle class

package i18n;
 
import java.util.Hashtable;
 
 
public class ResourceBundle {

Test English, Default Locale

// Default locale (base name)
 
package i18n;
 
 
public class Test extends ResourceBundle {
public Test() {
resources.put( "hello", "Hello!" );
resources.put( "goodbye", "Goodbye!" );
resources.put( "stop", "Stop!" );
resources.put( "notranslation", "This is English." );
}
}

French (fr) language, no specific country

package i18n;
 
 
public class Test_fr extends ResourceBundle {
public Test_fr() {
resources.put( "hello sen", "Bonjour!" );
resources.put( "goodbye", "Aurevoir!" );
}
}
